Background and Aim: Background and Aim: In recent years, the use of radio waves and devices operating in the 2.45 GHz range, such as cordless telephones and wireless modems, has greatly increased. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of 2.45 GHz waves on hematological markers of the immune system in mice.
Methods: In this experimental study, 72 immature male BALB/C mice were used. Mice were divided into 3 groups; one control group and two groups exposed to radiation (group A and group B). Then two Wi-Fi modems were prepared, one simple and without antenna that mice of Group A were exposed to it and the second type had two antennas that mice of Group B were exposed to it. After exposure, blood samples were taken to measure the white blood cells, monocytes, lymphocytes, and neutrophils.
Results: The number of white blood cells, monocytes, lymphocytes, and neutrophils increased during the study in control mice, but these parameters decreased significantly in the mice of the two intervention groups, which was time-dependent. There was no significant difference between the blood parameters of mice in the two intervention groups exposed to different modems.
Conclusion: The current findings indicate the side effects of 2.45 GHz on the immune system of exposed mice. This showed that white blood cells are more effective against long-term exposure to Wi-Fi waves.
Keywords: Immune system, Electromagnetic waves, 2.45 GHz, Mice.
